Taste coffee from Congo and try a good recipe for espresso

This month you have an opportunity to taste coffee from Congo and try a recipe for making a good espresso. This coffee comes from the Kava Family roastery in Split. This coffee will not attract you only with its packaging but with its delicious taste. Other coffees you can find both in our web shop and coffee shop are Congo, Guatemala, Brasil, Kenya and Costa Rica.

Our subscribers will receive this Congo (Kivu area) coffee for the month of August. Located at the border to Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, the Kivu area is home to coffees with stunning cup profiles. While the area is subject to ongoing conflicts, a cooperation between coffee farmers, Farm Africa and the Virunga National Park is encouraging peace through the growing of specialty coffee. Established in 1925, the Virunga National Park is the oldest national park in Africa and one of the last refuges of the mountain gorilla, and is also home to highly endangered lowland gorillas as well as savannah elephants, chimpanzees, lions, leopards and antelopes. It has the largest diversity of birdlife in the world. Due to its situation in eastern DR Congo, the park faces many existential challenges.

In addition to the biodiversity of the environment in which it grows, this coffee is special because it has a certificate of organic growth. It is bright, clean, floral and full bodied. This Congo is a perfect companion for all home brewers. It works great both as filter and espresso.

Here is a recipe for double espresso.

You'll need an espresso machine, grinder, scales and coffee.

-Weigh 20g of coffee beans with on the scales.
-Grind coffee in the grinder, taking care of the grinding granulation. If you don't have a grinder, we can grind coffee for you.
-Put the coffee in brew handle (portafilter) of espresso machine and tamp it.
-Brew your coffee between 25-29 seconds.
-You should get approximately 40 g of espresso drink.
